Evan Eugene Norman, 17, died on Saturday, Nov. 14, in Tahoe City in a dirt bike accident. Norman was born on Jan. 1, 1992, in Banning, Calif., to parents Rebecca Norman, Randy Bonskowski and Eric Norman.

Evan only made it to 17, but he lived a big 17 years. He was the oldest boy of four children, not including all the adopted siblings over the years. Our family could not have been closer; Evan was our best friend. We all have our stories of the good times as well as the rough. No matter what, we all knew how much we loved each other. Evan was always Evan. He never changed and we always loved him just how he is.

Evan had many interests and hobbies, most of which included extreme sports. Evan lived for the motorcycle, whether it was on the street or on the dirt. Living in the mountains, he loved to snowboard, and he was always trying to do the next huge move. He also loved playing the normal sports and wakeboarding. When he wasnand#8217;t on a motorized vehicle, he was cruising around town on his skateboard.

Evan was known for bringing home stray animals and#8212; not only cats and dogs, but birds and lizards as well. He absolutely loved his animals just like they were his siblings.

Evan is survived by: his mother, Rebecca Norman; his father, Randy Bonskowski; his father, Eric Norman; his sisters, Erica Norman and Kymberlee Bonskowski; his brother, Elmo Norman, as well as all the strays; his grandparents, Shirley and Red Mayhood, Patricia and Richard Hicksted, and Lorraine Bonskowsk; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who love him dearly.

A memorial fund has been established at Eldorado Savings Bank. Memorial suggestions can be sent to P.O. Box 5114, Tahoe City, CA 96145.

Thank you to everyone.
